About Me

(Updated 9/4/15)
Full-time, published photographer, with my current studio in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago; but I will be relocating to the Washington D.C. area in the near future. I specialize in headshots, portraits, fashion, glamour, and boudoir; but can and will shoot about anything; either in my studio or on location. I'm extremely easy to work with, honest, ethical, and am professional in every respect. You will not get any B.S. from me and I will deliver what I promise and on-time. I love working with new models to create, improve, or enhance portfolios, and will help you get published in various magazines/websites if/when interested. When you hire me for portfolio work, those images concentrate on you and I prefer to get the image "in camera" so you won't see a lot of artistic Photoshop work here; but I am willing and able to do so as needed.
The best way to contact me is thru e-mail at: rtgphoto7@yahoo.com  It will also speed-up communication if you provide your regular e-mail address. If I sent you a friend request it means I would like to work with you at some point.
Thanks for visiting my page and I look forward to working with you!

Unfortunately, many models (and photographers!) full-time, part-time, hobbyist, or professionals, do not always take their work seriously or professionally. I think everyone's time is valuable and run my business accordingly. Below are some of my policies:
- No shows will not be rescheduled, nor most last minute cancellations.
- A refundable (if shoot is cancelled at least 48 hours in advance) 30% deposit is normally required  to schedule a shoot unless we have already worked together. When I contract a HMUA for our shoot, a 50% deposit is mandatory. (When I hire someone to my team, they WILL be compensated even if the model doesn't make the shoot.) I accept PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, or cash.
-  A signed release is required for all work prior to the start of shooting, as is a government I.D. which I will take an image of.
- You will be given license to use the images I give you for personal marketing purposes only (portfolios, social media, blogs, most contests, etc.). They are not to be used for any commercial purposes without a separate agreement, nor are they to be retouched, edited, or cropped.
- I do not provide all the images from our shoot on a DVD, flash drive, etc. to control quality standards.We will normally review most or all of our work on a big screen TV at the end of the shoot for your input on which ones you like best for retouching. If you want prints, you can order them through me for printing at one of my professional labs.
- A guest will be allowed to accompany you if we have not worked together previously because I understand safety concerns when working with new photographers. However, I highly appreciate them waiting in an adjoining area during the shoot where they can enjoy a big screen tv and refreshments while we work. The distraction of having others in the studio does not help the process and generally lowers the quality of our work.
- Anything you want to remain confidential and private, obviously will be kept that way.
- Referrals: I will pay you $25 for any referral you provide that hires me - payable after I am paid by them of course smile
- I will credit you in any image posted by me, (unless you request otherwise), to help get your name out there. I generally appreciate that same consideration.

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II


I have gotten numerous models published many times and I have been the featured photographer and/or cover photographer in several model magazines/websites including: ModelzView, Aqstrashot, Vizual, Freaks 'N Geeks, Surreal Beauty, Model-Up, Mancave,TPG, FemmeXposure, and others. Several of my model images have appeared on Maxim's and Miss Coed websites, I had four models accepted by Playboy, and I was published in an international travel magazine with a winning landscape competition image, and had my work published in V.S. Chicago Magazine. I enjoy helping models market themselves and get noticed and will generally work with you on most publishing interests you have, including providing high resolution images for print publications.
